Check almost any line of academic publications and you are not likely to see creative book covers. Monographs, published dissertations, and the like are not known for eye-catching displays. For our academic imprint, Pickwick Publications, our cover designers do an excellent job of giving life to the types of books known for lifeless appearances. Here are a few of my recent favorites.

By the way, did you know that you can download any of our covers from our website. Go to a book’s web page and click ‘Download Cover’ beneath the picture of the cover.

Finally, on the topic of covers. I’m really digging Dwight Yoakam’s cover of “Man of Constant Sorrow” from his new album Second Hand Heart.
